I bought the Serfas Airbones pump about two years ago. It is a budget pump and I thought I would own it longer than I wanted to. I found out that it is very convenient and easy to use, and I never worried about a pump upgrade. Last month the fairly cheap hose finally broke and I was without a floor pump. I ride latex tubes so that was intolerable! I was surfing and typed in www.serfas.com, found an e-mail address and voila! They sent me 2 new hoses! This is the best service anyone could expect on a budget, hell... on any pump.The pump could be more durable, and let me down one pepper right before The Assault on Mt. Mitchell. I do recommend dealing with these folks, and they make a better pump as well.

Strength:

Cheap.

Weakness:

Pump head leaks at high pressure. Low capacity means achieving high pressure is difficult. Low mounted gauge.

Yes, you do get what you pay for. In this case, not much. Ok, so it was only 20 bucks, but next time I'm going to get a good pump. This pump barely does the job--the capacity is so low that it takes great effort to get over 100 psi. At anything over 80, the head leaked, so I found a Specialized head for $10, which works better, but still not great. Bottom line: pay real money and get a real pump. I think it's worth getting a pump with a top-mounted gauge.

Old Schwinn--a classic. Wish I still had it.

Strength:

Looks nice, reasonable price as I recall

Weakness:

Hose valve/head wears out and leaks air, AND sometimes "automatically" flips over to the schrader opening when pumping a the presta valve. Plastic handle snapped off after a couple years.

This pump was good while it lasted, but once it started going bad it went bad FAST. The presta valve head gasket leaks air like crazy when pumping (to the point that it almost won't add air to a tire) and the pump handle snapped off the other day. To be fair, the pump has lasted a couple years, but I didn't buy it intending it to be a disposable product. Bottom line, I will look at a different brand to replace it.

How would I remember what pumps I've used? sheesh.
